The Chase of the Bismarck: Operation Rheinübung, 1941
Brand: VUCA Simulations
Product Code: VS008
The Chase of the Bismarck is played in turns, each representing nearly five hours of real time. In each turn, both players secretly move any or all ships and air units under their command on their own Search Board. Each player may then call out zones in which he has enough Search Factors to locate his opponent's ships. This is called the "operational part of the game". If opposing ships are discovered to be in the same zone, they may proceed to combat on the Battle Board. This is called the "tactical part of the game".
The game ends if the Bismarck is sunk, arrives at a friendly port or the last turn of the game (evening of May 29th) has been played.
